WASHINGTON (AP) - Budget
Director Bert Lance ran into tough
questioning from a Senate panel
yesterday over whether he delayed a
routine FBI probe, into his past and
whether bank overdrafts during his
1974 gubernatorial campaign gave
him an unfair advantage.
But he also picked up some vocal
support as Sen. Thomas Eagleton
(D-Mo.) claimed that Lance was
being smeared by the same broad
brush used so effectively by the late
Sen. Joseph McCarthy.
"An the 1950s. we had guilt by asso-
ciation," Eagleton said. "Sen. Mc-
Carthy made it into a fine art. In 1977,
we have guilt by accumulation."
McCARTHY, a Wisconsin Republi-
can, made headlines during the 1950s
with largely unsubstantiated accusa-
tions of widespread Communist infil-
tration in the United States.
Some of the harshest questioning of
Lance came from Sen. Charles
Mathias (R-Md.) who claimed the
ability of Lance's campaign commit-
tee to write overdrafts on the

Business didn't range far from the
health field at yesterday's Regents'
meeting as board members unanimous-

the six-million-dollar bill it will send to
the state legislature in October.
The Regents discussed methods for

Regent Thomas Roach -(D-Detroit)
said yesterday he expects the Uni-
versity to hold a forum this fall on the
future of its $40 million investment in
firms with ties to South Africa. Two
other Regents said they wanted to
examine the University's South Afri-
can investment policy.
Their statements to the Daily came
